C Division

Combined Reserve League

Scottish Alliance

The C Division was formally abolished at a SGM of the Scottish League on 19 June 1955 after a number of prominent clubs pulled their reserve sides out. They subsequently set up the Scottish (Reserve) League, the brackets distinguishing it from the 1938-1949 versions. Again it was to be a mirror of the First Division although there were a number of seasons when not all of those clubs took part.

As an exclusively First Division competition, Second Division clubs were denied a place in the Scottish (Reserve) League, so many of these clubs sought new pastures. A Scottish Alliance was played during 1956-57 but it wasn’t popular and disbanded after only one season, but a Combined Reserve League flourished through the 1960s.

In 1975, the reorganization of the Scottish League into Premier-First-Second Divisions saw a restructured reserve set-up put in place.

Thanks to Rob Bruce, Stewart Davidson, Tom McGouran and Dave Beattie this page has a complete set of final tables for this version of the Scottish Reserve League.
